3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear dark toffee with a good coat of beige head. Very fruity aroma with some cocoa and toffee, nutty Sherry. Slightly oily body. Sweet dried fruit and toffee, dry woody finish. First few sips I was thinking around 2.5 but this really grew on me as I drank it. Gets no favours from being bottled.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, medium-dark ruby red-brown with an almost white head, good UK pint bottle. Hated the stupid monkey on the label. A great bitter aroma. Sweet, not heavily bittered, raisiny-vinous notes. Bitterness kicks in during the finish. Medium to medium-light body. Bitter ale, light cereal, prunes in the finish. Chan’s Wine World, Panama City Beach, FL.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent beer. Poured with a tan head that quickly settled down and no lace. Color is a lovely clear medium red amber. Aroma is very malty roast toffee and a hint fruity. Flavor is like aroma. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and medium in length. Serviceable beer. If you were in the mood for a straightforward malty ale this could be a session.
